  • Interactive Workshop on the Use of Remote Expert Witness - Part 2 (4/7/2021)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 04/07/2021 at 3:00 PM (CDT)

    The program will consist of a series of live demonstrations by experts and judges. All participants, including members of the bench, the bar and the expert community, will be allowed to make assessments in real time.

    The Illinois Supreme Court rules now provide that expert (and other) testimony can be heard remotely, which can save time, money for litigants and is more convenient for all involved. The Forensic Expert Witnesses Association (FEWA) and The Chicago Bar Association (CBA) have joined forces to offer a 2-part series which will provide guidance for Illinois judges and attorneys alike in determining how expert testimony should be conducted and regulated. Expert testimony in jury trials will be the focus of this second installment of the series.

    The program will consist of a series of live demonstrations by experts and the following respected Judges: Alison Conlon, Thomas More Donnelly, Patrick Sherlock and Sanjay Tailor who will be the trial litigators. All participants, including members of the bench, the bar and the expert community, will be allowed to make assessments in real time. Bench and Bar audience members will then have an opportunity to share and receive feedback from participating judges, experts and litigators, during an interactive session following the demonstrations to determine the most effective and compelling best practices.

    The Protected.

    TOPIC: The Protected.

    When I was the Director of Central Intelligence, I relied on Mike and his colleagues to keep me and my family safe around the world." - George Tenet Former Director Central Intelligence Agency Close personal protection can often mean the difference between life and death. But for too many protectees or practitioners, understanding the world of executive protection (EP) can be an intimidating and unfamiliar prospect. The Protected is an inside view of personal security, intelligence and executive protection written by someone who has lived it for more than 30 years. In this book, former CIA Special Agent and security specialist Michael Trott demonstrates how much EP depends on training, experience, proper intelligence, lessons learned, one's ability to operate both alone and in a team, and - perhaps most importantly - adopting the proper mindset. Aimed at protectees, practitioners and all those with an interest in EP, The Protected contains valuable insight on: - Determining your personal risk profile (i.e., your why) - How the global risk environment affects your personal security - Establishing a durable and effective protection program - The subtle nuances of providing successful close protection - Important EP methodologies, philosophies, complexities and mindsets - The people who protect others and their unique perspectives

    SPEAKER/ORGANIZATION:  Mike W. Trottt,  the author of The Protected

  • Don't Get Hooked: Phishing Attacks in 2021 (2/17/2021)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/17/2021 at 10:30 AM (CST)

    In this seminar, we’ll take a look at the various technologies hackers might use to ‘go phishing.’ We’ll also discuss how you can better your odds of spotting a phishing attempt and train team members to do the same.

    2020 saw a huge increase in ransomware attacks on law firms as well as in the amount of money hackers then demanded for ransom. Lawyers are ideal targets for these attacks due to the large amount of personal information they retain related to their clients. Phishing is one of the most common techniques hackers will use to access this information, and their tactics get more sophisticated every day. In this seminar, we’ll take a look at the various technologies hackers might use to ‘go phishing.’ We’ll also discuss how you can better your odds of spotting a phishing attempt and train team members to do the same.
